Testimonials

I ate at The Church recently, and I would really recommend it!

I had the burger while my friend had the lasagne, both of which were greatly presented and filling! We were both full half way through!

We also stayed for some cocktails after dinner, on a Thursday there’s are 2 FOR 1 !!!!
They are also amazing cocktails, some of the best I’ve ever tasted and you know they are made well!
I recommend the Church martini!

The staff were brilliant, efficient and very friendly!

The venue itself is extremely cool, we were sitting beside the baptismal font which we thought was so cool! It is an extremely unique place and so glad I went!

If I was to bring a group of my friends visiting Dublin somewhere it would be here as you can expect great food, drinks and atmosphere!

We went here for an office Christmas party and had a fabulous time.  The staff were attentive, the service was great and everyone commented how much they enjoyed the food.  The atmosphere in the bar was fun and vibrant with a large range of drinks and we stayed until closing time.

I met here for a class reunion on Friday where we availed of a deal which included reserving an area, finger food and prosecco. From my first email to them to arriving the service was excellent. I have had bar food, dined in the gallery, and met here socially on many occasions and have found this always to be the case. The young lady who looked after us couldn’t have been more attentive (including offering her services as a photographer) which we were happy to take her up on. Some of my companions had not been there before but now intend going back, with partners , or work colleagues, and as a group of school friends we will also be going back. Thanks to all the staff for making our night most enjoyable

After organising a social gathering in The Church , I was very impressed with the décor, the table service and the music was very apt for the evening. In general a great night was had by all , food was delicious and well presented. Would definitely consider The Church for further gatherings or parties.

How often can you call a church your local? Already a historical landmark for Irish political, business and literary heroes like Jonathan Swift, Arthur Guinness and Sean O’Casey, today The Church punctuates the Henry / Mary street shopping area as a welcome place for bag-laden shoppers and locals alike to set down their burdens.
Stepping inside, first-timers are immediately swept up in the interior’s grandeur – from an original (but silent) pipe organ, to hand-painted murals, replica tombstones and dark woods and marble,  all lovingly restored by original owner John Keating.
If it’s a soft day, head inside and grab one of The Church’s lush leather couches; if there’s a shred of sun, make for cool cafe-style seating available outside.
The lunchtime menu is varied, with wraps, sandwiches, salads and soup of the day offered along with finger-food platters for groups sharing. Unfortunately, the prices reflect the surroundings, and range from €8.95 for a Goat’s Cheese and Spinach Salad to €13.95 for fish and chips. Leave the ground floor for the airy Gallery above and discover a more grown-up menu offering seafood, pasta and other dishes. An Early Bird menu is available from 5-7pm Sun – Fri, while the evening menu delivers on portions and taste.
Pint lovers will find The Church taste runs toward mass-market, with no craft beers or specialties on tap. Lovers of Guinness, Miller, Corona and others will find prices again to reflect the decor, but quick table and bar service does make drinking it all in much easier.
For casual pub explorers, be sure to avoid Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for a first-time visit, as Dublin’s bright young things pack the bar and make space a rarer commodity than a free seat. Go in on a lazy Sunday afternoon for a slow lunch and a long chat, and let the magic of this historic space make your weekend one to remember.
